This series contains eleven albums, compiled by the Horizons Regional Council Archivist, of photographs collected by the Manawatu Catchment Board concerning floods.
Each major flood event has had a reference given to it consisting of an F prefix and the year of the event and then each set of photographs within that is distinguished with a subseries alphabetical or numerical code, e.g. F76/1. Within that each photograph is individually numbered, either with an imposed number or an originally assigned number.
Minor flood events have been collected together by decade, so start with an F prefix, then the decade of the event and then "MISC", e.g. F50/MISC. Within that each photograph is individually numbered, either with an imposed number or an originally assigned number.
Each major flood event sequence is preceded by a map created by the Archivist to indicate the position the photos were taken from. Many of the photographs have also been annotated to indicate landmarks, roads and other items of interest.
